I am trying to add Authentication window to a section of the site using .htaccess file.
But It is not working "the site is acting that the ".htaccess" files does not exists.
here is that content of my .htaccess file
AuthType Basic AuthName "PHP MyAdmin" AuthUserFile "c:/.htpasswd" Require valid-user
the .htpasswd file is located on the C: drive.
and the .htaccess file is located inside a folder called dba so I want to secure the dba folder.
I have opned the httpd.conf file and updated the AllowOverride option from none to Indexed like this
<Directory /> AllowOverride Indexed Require all denied </Directory>
before this change this is how it was AllowOverride None Require all denied
How can i get the site to require a user authentication when someone tried to access the dba directory?
I have Apache 2.4.12 installed on Windows Server 2008 R2
